Henry Selick's 2009 Coraline is, as far as I understand the production, a hybrid of still frames shot on a Nikon and digital technology, with the final result being a 2k DI.

I'm certain someone will step in and correct if I'm wrong.

The film was released on both 35mm as well as digital 3D.

Shout Factory's new 4k, released as a gorgeous steelbook (I make no representations as to collectibility or investment quality) looks magnificent in projection. Those who have a copy of the Blu-ray in their libraries will want to hold onto that variant, as it will have the original 3D version. While this may be considered an upgrade, it does not supplant the original.

Color and resolution in 4k are commensurate with the original work and appear as one might expect, creating what could pass as a fully 4k version of the original.

For those who don't have a copy of Coraline, be aware that it's not just some stop motion animated film for kids. It readily holds the attention of personages of the adult persuasion.

The new Dolby Atmos mix comes along with the rest of the package absolutely free, and extras abound.

A beautiful package from Shout Factory.

Audio – 5 (Dolby Atmos)

Pass / Fail – Pass

Plays nicely with projectors - Yes

Makes use of and works well in 4k - 4

Upgrade from Blu-ray - Absolutely, but keep in mind there's no 3D!

Highly Recommended
